That’s awesome. There are all kinds of things that have to come together to make a wrestling show work, but the most important is the audience. If the show does not have fans watching, nothing the wrestlers are doing matters. A wrestler making a personal connection with a fan can make them a fan for life and that appears to be what happened at a recent event.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: LOOK: Asuka Offers Major Update On Her Injury (And It’s Not Good)

WWE has uploaded a video to its Instagram page showing WWE Universal Champion Cody Rhodes meeting a young fan after his match at a live event in Binghamton, New York. The fan was dressed as Rhodes, who brought her into the ring and presented her with his weightlifting belt. Rhodes then held the girl in the air and posed with her in the ring. Rhodes defeated AJ Styles to retain his title at the event.

It’s an amazing moment. Check out the clip plus what Rhodes has been doing lately:

Opinion: There is almost nothing in wrestling more special than seeing a fan get to interact with their favorite wrestler. That is something you do not get to see very often but you know how special it is when you see it happen. There is a very good chance that the fan is going to remember this for the rest of her life and that is going to make a big difference in making her a fan for a very long time.
